Cost Effective, movie review

Film festival movies, and really any low budget movie made with a smaller crew and less oversight from the big budget companies, tend to have a very unique feel to them. Such is true for “Cost Effective.”

The theme for the movie is simple. Exaggerate common stereotypes to a point where it’s so overdone, it’s funny. From the guard who is obsessed with his donuts, to the nutty black gangster who can’t stop grabbing his crotch, the movie holds firm to not showing originally. But if this is truly a comedy, sometimes the classics hold true, so I get why they chose that direction.

The story line focuses on a hold up gone wrong, with a twist. If you put more thought than that into it, the entire plot falls apart. So don’t think when you see it. Just watch.

Overall, it’s a good film if you are into exaggerated comedy that’s teetering between slapstick and ironic.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
